Ride the Ridges

September 13 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Cabot, Vermont’s Ride the Ridges is a “something for everyone” type of event. This event, where 100% of the proceeds go towards Cabot Connects, Cabot’s Mentoring Program, offers 4 different distance rides, each with multiple aid stations, plenty of gravel, hills, and scenic overlooks.  We offer a 10k, 30k, 60k, and 100k ride, with staggered start times. The routes are well-marked and maps are provided. Almost all of the riding is on gravel roads and trails, and the scenery is breathtaking.  For those looking for a challenging ride, the 100k offers plenty of challenge, complete with over 7500 ft of elevation gain.

The aid stations are stocked with plenty of energy-rich food, including granola bars, trail mix, maple-syrup shots, freshly picked local apples, freshly made maple donuts, pickles, bananas, plenty of water and gatorade, and even specialty cheeses and crackers – and more!  Following the ride, we deck out the Cabot Green with a mobile wood-fired pizza oven for handmade pizzas with all-natural ingredients, more specialty cheeses, and lots, lots more!!  This is a terrific event put on by terrific people and supporting a terrific cause.  If you have any questions, please contact us through our FaceBook page – https://www.facebook.com/cabotconnects – or by email at info@ridetheridges.net

The Rasputitsa Spring Classic

April 18 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

The Rasputitsa Spring Classic

Halfway sold-out a year in advance, the Rasputitsa Gravel Race is climbing the charts as on of the premier gravel grinders. Taking place on April 18, 2020, racers battle the elements of spring gravel roads in Northeast Vermont for 40 miles with 4500 ft of climbing and Class IV unmaintained sections that are often snow-covered.

We started out as two friends with a hope to get 50 riders to travel the backroads in which we live.  It was really that simple.  What we established was one of the best Vermont Gravel Road Races, the Rasputitsa Spring Classic.  We created an unsanctioned gravel road race that challenge the human spirit and strength.  And we live by three principles:

  • Love of Cycling

  • Love of Community

  • Love of Charity

More than anything we care about our racers.  We are at the finish line shaking hands.  We are constantly seeking their advice and input.  We ride with our racers.  We are small. In fact, we don’t want to grow over 500 racers per race so we never lose that small town feeling.

We are unsanctioned. No license.  No prize purse.  Have a bike and the will to race and you are a match for our races.  We attract road, cyclocross, singlespeed, mountain bike, tandem, and fatbikes.  But we are a race.  We are timed.  We have podiums.  And mostly our winners have bragging rights.

Irreverent Road Ride

July 27, 2019 @ 6:30 am 5:00 pm

Here we GO!

1/16/2019: Let’s clarify one thing, IRR is most certainly not a “road ride”. Not sure what we mean? Take a few minutes to enjoy this video of IRR 3.0.

Please consider donating to the VMBA Annual Fund, SHS is ensuring a 100% donation match (up to $1500, we ain’t rich) to continue to support the development and maintenance of current and future trails here in the state of Vermont. We use some of these trails in different years and they’re important enough to us that SHS’s own president serves on the VMBA Board of Directors. Another party will match our donations up to $2500, so let’s get after it.

First and foremost, more details will be provided (such as actual distance) next month. Thank you for your commitment and your patience.
